What people are saying about the Ambassadors:
Fall 2018 SBSY Admit
As an International student, I had many questions such as ‘How do I register for my courses; Which professors should I be speaking to; What would be a proximal and safe locality to stay off campus’. The Student ambassadors offer an experienced and comfortable shoulder to rely on, extending endless support at every stage and making friends in the process.
Fall 2018 EM Admit
My ambassador has always gone out of their way and taken those extra strides to make sure our doubts are always cleared. They have an unbelievable amount of patience and goes into detailed explanations as well as constant dialogue to make sure there’s not room for error. On multiple occasions, they helped out tremendously just out of genuine care and kindness without even being asked. I had an amazing uplifting conversation with another ambassador that really helped in calming me down in my overwhelmed state and also got some really good advice on how best to conduct myself. I’m truly grateful to have had their support.
Fall 2018 Admit
The simplicity level that the ambassador I connected with has is just awesome. They don’t give a second thought while answering any questions and are always ready to help. They are constantly looking out for comprehensive, but easy to understand solutions and make sure that whatever has been understood is to the best of the knowledge. Even though there’s a time difference, resolutions have come quickly and as soon as possible. Their patience level is hats off, never getting tired even answering the simplest of questions. They are doing a great job. Thanks so much for all the help and support.
